Description:
Abstract:
Biomass resource potential for the lower 48 states of the United States of America.
Purpose:
Provide information on the biomass resource potential for the United States of America lower 48 states.
Supplemental_Information:
Estimate technical biomass resources available in the United States by county.  The following feedstock categories are considered for this study: crop residues, methane emissions from manure management, methane emissions from landfills and wastewater treatment facilities, forest residues, primary and secondary mill residues, urban wood waste, and dedicated energy crops.
